WHAT WE DO
Change Management & Governance
We offer three key services. We meet our clients where they are at, in terms of their maturity with their strategy, action plans and leading positive change. We build and improve with our clients guiding and steering in a co-design approach.
1. Strategy Design, Integration & Governance across People, DEI, Business Strategies
We find often that these strategies do not align and are often owned by different but allied stakeholders in the business, who have to influence each other to get the work done. This often leads to poor governance, funding discrepancies, duplication and ultimately poor progress for the people these plans and strategies should serve.
2. Equity Action Plans
While we site hundreds of gender equality plans and other diversity plans for different groups, we seldom see these plans addressing equity, historical disadvantage and discrimination. It often homogenises a whole group, like women without addressing different gender intersectional gaps.
3. Change Management
Our biggest observation and concern is the poor change management from leaders who govern plans, strategies, policy reforms. It often means that initiatives and progress don’t realise their full benefit – there is often sunk costs of training, workshops and programs of work that are often stopped, restarted, not followed up. No one often governs the change that needs to be realised.
Acknowledgement to Country
At MindTribes, we pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Australia. Representing the oldest living culture in the world, First Nations people have been the traditional custodians of this land for more than 65000 years. Australia, is the only commonwealth country that does not have a signed treaty (a formal agreement with the government and Indigenous people). We at MindTribes are committed to ensuring that every client we partner with has a meaningful and action-based Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)– whilst we don’t design or deliver a RAP, one of our first principles is not doing business with a client who does not have a RAP or an intention to execute a RAP in the time we are with them.
